I'm giving this a rating of 5, with the qualification that it has excessive amounts of sugar. I use 1/3 C splenda and even with the reduction, I add 2-3 T of lemon juice, and it is still plenty sweet. My mother, who was Scandanavian, made this type of recipe during my childhood, but it was never written down, so I was very happy to find this recipe a few years ago. You can use just about any combination of dried and fresh fruit you wish. If you add a cup of frozen mixed berries it turns a beautiful color (added with the fresh fruit for the last 5 minutes of cooking). The batch I just made has dried mixed tropical fruit and dried apples and apricots, dried cranberries and raisins, and also orange slices (without the rind) and an apple- pear to replace the fresh apple, plus the frozen berries . I usually end up with close to 2X the amount of fruit for the same amount of water, and it comes out just the right consistency. It simple to make and it is really yummy served cold for breakfast and very handy to have on hand if you're short on time.
Was going to post the same recipe. Yum!
I made this exact recipe a few years ago and it is so delicious! I like it over yogurt or cottage cheese. Thank you for posting it!
